Congresswoman Maxine Waters is working with the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) to resettle up to forty-one-thousand (41,000) Somali Refugees in South and Central Los Angeles by 2020.
A letter written by Maxine Waters to the Chief Operating Officer of OneUnited Bank, which describes itself as America’s largest Black-owned bank, goes on to say she expects these refugees to be housed in NEW APARTMENTS and CONDOMINIUM UNITS which are being built thanks to underwriting by that bank!
More stunning is her closing remark that the Election cycle has begun ans that she expects to become Speaker of the House!
If bringing in up to 41,000 uneducated, Somali third-worlders wasn’t bad enough, and putting them in BRAND NEW HOUSING doesn’t drive you nuts, how about the fact that right now, Los Angeles has such a problem with HOMELESS PEOPLE that a Hepatitis Outbreak is actually killing many of them because they crap on the streets and become infected! Instead of helping AMERICANS in her District, she’s bringing in refugees from an African country and putting THEM in new housing !
Washington, D.C. – In the midst of a national financial catastrophe, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) used her position as a senior member of Congress and member of the House Financial Services Committee to prevail upon Treasury officials to meet with OneUnited Bank. She never disclosed that her husband held stock in the bank. This outrageous conduct has led Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) to include the congresswoman as one of the Most Corrupt Members of Congress.

“By contacting then-Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson to request a meeting, allegedly for a group of minority-owned banks, but then arranging for only one bank – OneUnited, in which she had a financial interest – to attend, Rep. Waters violated House conflict of interest rules,” said CREW Executive Director Melanie Sloan.
Around the same time Rep. Waters asked the Treasury Department to hold the initial meeting, Rep. Waters spoke to Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) about OneUnited, telling him that her husband previously had served on the board. Rep. Frank advised her to stay out of matters related to the bank. Nevertheless, Rep. Waters’ chief of staff and grandson, Mikael Moore, continued to actively assist OneUnited representatives in their quest to receive bailout funds, and worked to craft legislation authorizing Treasury to grant OneUnited’s request.
Rep. Waters was scheduled for an ethics trial on November 29, 2010, but the House Ethics Committee postponed the hearing. Inconsistent reports have emerged suggesting both potential new evidence and serious misconduct by two of the committee’s attorneys and improper conduct by committee members. In July 2011, the committee hired respected D.C attorney Billy Martin as outside counsel to investigate both the case against Rep. Waters and the committee itself.
“The ethics committee has handled the case against Rep. Waters with the maturity of school children,” said Ms. Sloan. “Happily, adult supervision in the form of Mr. Martin has been brought in to clean up the mess.”
This is the 7th edition of the CREW’S Most Corrupt Report, an annual look at a bipartisan collection of Washington’s worst. This year’s list includes seven Democrats, and 12 Republicans. Five are repeat offenders. Since 2005, CREW has named 70 members of Congress to the list, 32 of whom are no longer in office.
